The Grand Knexpert Tournament (TGKT) Answered

The Grand Knexpert Tournament has started. The first challenge for all of the contestants is to make a knex gun. Yes that's right, just make a knex gun. Your gun will be judged by power, reliability, ease of use, and looks. You have to have an instructable or a video for your gun. In the video you have to demonstrate the power, ease of use, and reliability. Slide shows and forum topics are not permitted. You cannot enter a knex weapon that has already been posted, but you can enter one that you are designing right now. The top 8 will move on and the rest will be out.

DEADLINE

Your gun has to be entered by November 10th, 2008.

to give you a real answer. I'm not sure but most likely it will go on a simple check out and vote system. Jollex if I may make a suggestion we ought to have people just vote for like 3-8 entries and the eight with the most votes go on. It is only the first round so lets not get too complicated. Make a deadline of like three days. Should we let others outside the contest vote? Most likely some of the haters will kill the two of us. But you just know they'll take offense if we mention that.

No, because it will be very biased. I am going to set up a rating system that me and one co-judge will use to evaluate all the entries.

Lol nah most Canadians at least where he lives sound just like Americans. Check out one of his videos. Some are in the french areas so they might have a french accent when speaking but I've never listened to any. And then stereotypically they have some strange accent where they always say things like "eh" and "doncha know" and sometimes "oh ya you betcha"

Bonjour! J'habite à l'Angleterre, à travers la mer! By the way, you speak (or type) English better than plenty of the people on this site, but I suppose you did live in New Jersey for over half your life... You still have an American accent I notice.

I guess. And I think that people who learn english as a second language actually can write it better than those who english is there first language.

Maybe. It depends on the individual usually.

Actually it makes sense because people learning a second language are more likely to focus on doing it correctly rather than using slang and stuff like that that people having it as their first language do. I found this out in spanish. Some people who actually speak spanish at home didn't do some part right because they purposely don't speak it 100% correctly.

I suppose, Sometimes you get a little sloppy with your native tongue, as you said, slang.
